Jeremy Guscott tips Bath for the win!!

Leicester v Bath

I think Bath have got a much better chance of winning at Welford Road than they did when they were thrashed back in April.

When the two sides met in the Premiership regular season, Leicester ran out 43-20 winners, and the Tigers are always a good bet at home.

The difference between Sunday's game and the one back in April is that Bath have really kicked on over the past four or five weeks.

The confidence is back and they are playing some really good rugby, the forwards are off-loading and their backs are showing great ability.

Danny Grewcock and Luke Watson didn't play for Bath last time and they will make a difference. Waston's on fire, Grewcock brings experience and a lot of aggression, and Leicester will find it a lot harder in the forwards this time.

There is so much rivalry between the clubs, but it's been fairly quiet over the past few years, probably because Leicester have been so much more successful in recent times.

However, the memories of the fans are a lot longer than those of the players, so the atmosphere will be just like the old days.

Welford Road will be intimidating, ferocious and completely partisan and it will be a really tight affair.

Prediction: Bath by less than seven
